|« Pulling Strings: For classical music in Chicago, you got a guy - January 2012||Lowe & Staples Put the Load Right On Wilco »|
Concert Fri Jan 06 2012
NYE concerts rocked Chicago into 2012, but what happens now that the mixture of confetti, champagne and vomit is swept away? Next week, Tomorrow Never Knows 2012 will roll into Chicago, giving music lovers a reason to quit hibernating and rock out at some of the best venues across the city. From Wednesday, January 11, 2012 through Sunday, January 15th, TNK will be bring five nights of wintery music fun to this frozen city. TNK will be jammin' at Schubas, Lincoln Hall, Metro, the Hideout and Smart Bar . Tickets have already gone on sale for most of the shows. Check venue sites or the Reader's Website for complete listings and tickets sales.
Below: Enjoy a playlist of tunes from TNK 2012 bands.
One show I'm really excited about is Grouplove on Saturday, January 14. The oh-so-California music sensation will be charming audiences at Lincoln Hall during this year's TNK with tongue-in-cheek sweetness and satisfyingly bouncy melodies. Unfortunately, this young American indie group show is sold out of single show tickets but you can still buy a five-day pass and see Grouplove and all the other lovely bands at all the TNK venues. Grouplove will be joined on Saturday with Hospitality, 1,2,3 and Kid Color.
